Michael Owen has given his prediction on the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.
The two sides are set to face each other on Sunday, with the Red Devils sitting in 2nd place in the league table. Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s side are 6th on the list and will be hoping to celebrate a win at Old Trafford.
However, speaking about the upcoming match, Owen has predicted a 1 – 1 draw for the teams.
“Both these sides played out a 0-0 draw at Anfield earlier in the season. That was followed by another close encounter in the FA Cup, a game United won 3-2, so I believe we could be in for another tight match here,” he said.
“Away from home United have been sensational this season. Their home form had been a bit patchy up until recently, however, they come into this undefeated at Old Trafford in six league matches.
“I think United will happily give Liverpool some territory here in the hope they can catch them on the counter. To some degree, I think this can work, although it will be hard to keep Liverpool out playing like this over the full 90 minutes.
“With that in mind, I could see this one ending all square with both sides cancelling each other out.”
